still around and kickin’

First off want to thank unskinnygirl and dysfunctionalbarbie for their kind words on my previous post, it still amazes me how words from other people can really turn your day around. I’m still around and kicking, not running right now or doing any lower body/core strengthening either, but did manage to get some arm strengthening in, as well as pulled out the wii board (or in my case pushed it out with my foot lol) so I could use it for some simple “Wii free step”, it’s not much but it’s something, so I’ll take it ;) Hanging in there, each day gets a little easier, not sure if that its healing, the meds are working, or I’ve learned how to move around without aggravating it now lol! Hope everyone had a good week and has a good weekend! :) See you all on the other side!

oh common!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’m sooo frustrated! It seems almost every 2 weeks something happens to prevent me from working out Whether I get sick or sustain an injury. And what is this week you ask, on nothing big just fell on my tailbone this past weekend, no biggie right? Except that it hurts to walk, sit, just a pain in the A** :o

I’m on pain killers for it as well as anti-inflammatories, now just wait to find out if it’s fractured or just badly bruised. I’m just soooo mad/frustrated, all I want to do is go do all my workouts and I can’t. So this week no weight loss, which I guess I should be happy not to have gained, but I was so looking forward to being out of the 220’s, there’s always next week I guess. Fingers crossed this will be the last injury/flu I’ll have for the year!…

Hope everyone is having a good week!

Pleasantly Surprised!

And another 2lbs gone! Woot this time next week I will be out of the 220’s -Awesome!!! As I mentioned in a previous post (Mondays) I’m back to my regular workout routine, and it feels so good to be back at it! (which after years of inactivity, I’m pleasantly surprised to find I’m actually enjoying it and looking forward to them!) :) I really can’t wait till I break into the Onederland! Honestly words cannot describe how much I am looking forward to it! So hopefully these next few weeks will fly by and I’ll be there in no time! Hope everyone’s having a good week and fingers crossed all these commenting errors on people’s blog will be fixed soon!

Happy Hump Day! :)

End Date

I haven’t exactly set a goal date. In my first post ever I played around with the idea of meeting my goal by Augustish. So after some thought today came up with a more of a realistic time frame. In a perfect world where all my fattiness would melt itself off and I’d have the body I’m working I would meet my goal by August 7th. In order to reach that though I’d have to lose 3lbs a week, and right now I’m losing usually 2lbs a week. Sooo after thinking this all through, I’m going to aim for me to meet my goal for Sept 5th! (Also means I’ll be slim and fabulous for my 25th birthday in the fall ;) Hope everyone’s having a good week :)

back at it

Back into my full workout routine again (C25k & weight training). Glad to be back at it after being sick!

mmmm good!

This ones just a quickie! Its Sunday or should I say indulge day! Not that I go crazy or anything normally, I just allow my self to have something I’ve been craving all week and am overly strict with what I’m putting into my body. Now normally this would for example a piece of cheesecake, or a handful of chips or something. But  today I had a little get together event to go too, and ended up getting to have a croissant, you know those flakey buttery pastries that taste like heaven but are really the devil in disguise? Yeah one of those! (and a few other things but this was my focus/favourite of the day) And I enjoyed it, savoured it and only had 1! I didn’t go back for a 2nd (before all of this I would have!) Anyways rather then coming home and beating myself up over having one of those “treats” (as I view them now) I decided to treat myself to a nice bubble bath. And I went all out too, put on some soothing relaxing music, lit what felt like 283748237498277 candles. It was nice to know and finally wrap my head around the fact that it’s not the end of the world for eating something like that on the rare occasion, and not to let it get me down. Tomorrow’s a new day! :)

Well that cold kicked my ….

Another 2lbs gone, which this past week I think I should “thank” this cold that kicked my **Beep**!!Today I woke up and can finally breath a little bit more easier then I have been able to over the last week. I’m itching to get back to working out, but since the bugger sucked all my energy and made just breathing seem like a chore I haven’t worked out since last Wednesday. A whole week of nothing, blahhh, at least the positive side of this would be the fact that I’m actually looking forward to getting back to working out. Been off work since I’ve been sick, and I’m going back today so I’ll get back to my strength training tomorrow, and if I can breath more comfortably on Friday I’ll get back into the C25K routine.

Fingers crossed this is the last day of feeling like crap, although I am happy I don’t feel like death warmed over anymore lol. Hope everyone had a good week! :)

First Failure

Well where to start. I was doing so well this week, just yesterday I was down 2lbs from last week (223lbs), but yesterday it all went to hell L I’m now back up to 225, that’s a 2lb gain in a day! (I don’t purposely weigh myself every day but the Wii fit program I’m using does.) So anyways someone came home with sweet home baked goods, and what did I do….I caved…but no not just one, I think throughout the entire day I had 5!!! 5!!! What was I thinking? Well the fact is I wasn’t, I gave in to my old behaviour and binged. I have to not let this get me down, I know it sucks but it also opened my eyes in a way that if I completely cut these sweets and treats out then I’ll binge anytime some are put in front of me, I’ll have to allow myself to have some every now and then so this never happens again. It’s just so frustrating for me to allow that to happen.
On another note I changed up my running routine. Rather than just using the set programs on the treadmill, I changed over to the “couch to 5km” running plan and even downloaded the app for my blackberry. I’m on the first week for that and so far it hasn’t been that challenging, I’m actually finding it pretty easy as it’s  fairly similar to what I was doing on the treadmill. I know next week though it’ll start to get harder as the run times get longer!

Feeling like I’m coming to come down with something as well (just my luck, why not hit me while I’m down!) can feel it building up in my throat and chest, hoping it’ll past quickly and not like the last one which lasted weeks!

I feel like I should try and end with a positive note which would be I uped my weights to a 5 lbs, so atleast there is a silver lining.   

Oh well just going to power through this week and hope for better results next week, also think I’ll start blogging on here more than once a week on my weigh in day. Hope everyone’s doing well and Happy Hump Day J 

If only..!

Dear Weight Loss Fairy,

    Where are you? I know the celebrities in Holly Wood keep you quite busy and all, but why have you not come to visit me? I have a few pounds (and then some) that would be a great interest to you. I know when it comes to the tooth fairy one must leave a tooth under their pillow, and we all know Santa likes his milk and cookies, but what do you like? What should I put under my pillow, or better yet perhaps on my scale to entice you to visit me? Your evil step sister the Weight Gain Wench use to visit me all the time and even tempt me with all those sweets and treats…All I’m asking for now is for you to come and visit me and bring your Fat Blasting Wand and blast away a few pounds or so, (or more if you’d like, we both know I have plenty to spare)! Until we meet I will continue to resist your evil step sister and continue the weight loss battle head on!

Yours Truly,

Lyrical
